Why are vehicles stored in Customers, Fleets and Contracts?

Organising data in a multiple level structure enables flexible inspection planning and powerful reporting.

Reporting You can tailor the TTM database to suit each of your individual customers. Organise similar vehicles in your database by company, location, vehicle type, inspection type and frequency.

Inspection Planning How often a vehicle needs inspecting depends on several factors. TTM lets you set inspection frequency to suit different types of vehicle within the same customer’s fleet. For example trailers may only need inspecting every 2 months while tipper trucks need inspecting every 2 weeks.

Inspection Cycles Experience shows most vehicles are set to be inspected once a month starting on the first of each month. However you can set cycles to start on any day of the month or week. Each cycle can last any number of weeks or months. This can help minimise peak times in the week or month fit inspection dates to to suit vehicle or staff availability.

You control inspection settings for each contract. They apply to all vehicles belonging to that contract.

Inspection Types

TTM provides the following ways to inspect vehicles

  • Depth – inspect tread depth, select tyre condition (faults) and action required.
  • Pressure – Allows input of pressure in addition to the standard depth & condition inspection as above.
  • Visual – Designed for quick checks. Lets you walk round a vehicle and visually check each tyre in turn. Assuming the tyre is visually OK you click OK to confirm. If the tyre is not OK  click NO.  This takes you to the Depth inspection process as above. You can then enter tyre depth, select a fault and enter the action. You can then continue to visually check the next tyre.
